The Power of Words

“Words are free. It is how you use them that may cost you.” – Kushand Wizdom

Words are the most powerful force available to mankind, and we can choose to use this force constructively, because a life can be changed forever, with as little as a single phrase.

So many broken lives has been restored, as a result of the unique power of words. Think of the impact we can make, if we become more intentional about encouraging others. Trust me, the right words can make all the difference.

Reading or listening to uplifting messages, is like a medicine that keeps us in good health. Words of love, hope, kindness, acceptance, can influence us greatly. They can quickly take root in our spirit.

Do you remember the words that encouraged you, or made you see things differently, when you felt like giving up? Who spoke or wrote the words that made you soared? Perhaps someone changed the trajectory of your life, with the way he or she spoke to you.

Words are used to effect change, and the right words can help improve the quality of our lives. With a renewed perspective, and a more positive energy, we stand a better chance of bringing good into our lives.

Being exposed to the right words, is like drinking from a life-giving well. Spoken or written words of encouragement, can change a person’s day, or even their entire life.

We tend to mix our words with our moods. You can change your mood, but the words you utter, can leave an imprint in the mind, forever. If we understood the power in our words, we would prefer silence, to almost anything negative.

Words are like seeds that grow up and bear fruit. If I may ask, have you ever thought about the kind of words you are creating? Are you imprisoned in a world that was created by someone’s careless words? Break free of those lies, today!

It is best to be conscious of the words we expose ourselves to, because words can put us in chains, or set us free. When we speak, listen, or think, we are engaging in something we should be mindful of.

Let’s be a people who speak life to those around us. Positive words serve as a guiding light, and gives us strength in times when we are weak. It has saved lives. Consider the power of words, and choose to make a positive mark, that will last a lifetime.

  1. Criticising a system that is using words as a pamflet while a crude exploit of human vunerability is occuring all around us should not be considered as a negative energy input. It should be seen as a wake up call so a positive and free of chains ,state of mind blossoms.

  2. You’re right, we don’t often understand the power of our words. I think it’s because it is so….complicated, and then…words aren’t THAt complicated and still they are. A nice reminder of that silence is gold. (okay I don’t think I even myself understand what i write)

    1. You made me giggled. 😊
      I totally understand what you are trying to say.
      Words are simple. It is people that makes it complicated, by not being mindful of what they say.
      Indeed, silence is golden, if we get to understand the power in our words. 🙂❤

  3. This brings to mind James 3:1-12

    3 My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment. 2 For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a [p]perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body. 3 [q]Indeed, we put bits in horses’ mouths that they may obey us, and we turn their whole body. 4 Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires. 5 Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things.

    See how great a forest a little fire kindles! 6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of [r]iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of [s]nature; and it is set on fire by [t]hell. 7 For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. 8 But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9 With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the [u]similitude of God. 10 Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so. 11 Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening? 12 Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? [v]Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh.

  4. It’s important to realize that we all listen differently. We listen in our personal unique conditioned way. I am careful with my words because I have no control over how someone hears them. Thanks for this post.

  6. Never a true word…. great post Thankyou , in these times where everyone has an opinion about everything. I had ‘words’ with someone close to me in the past week, which has left me reeling. People sometimes think it is their God given right to spew out venom… Fortunately I am a positive soul, in the words of the song “You say it best when you say nothing at all” 😎 I just love silence!

  7. Yes indeed! Let us be extra careful in throwing our words to others. It might hurt or cause them much discouragement in life. It is best to speak words that brings healing not that will hurt one’s feelings. Thank you for this great and inspiring wisdom!
